postponed - Historic Walking Tour of New Brunswick and Lunch - FALL DATE TBD
Join fellow alumni, parents, and friends for a leisurely walk and learn about new and historical buildings in New Brunswick. Resident Cameron Smith, MBA’80, will lead the tour, starting in the waiting room at the New Brunswick Train Station. You will hear about the important role New Brunswick played in our nation’s history since the 1700’s. There will be a chance to discover a UChicago connection!
The walk will cover less than 3 miles through streets of New Brunswick including several stops on the Rutgers College Avenue campus.
Lunch will begin at 1:00 at the Harvest Moon Brewery & Café and will include appetizers, salad, choice of 5 entrees, dessert, and non-alcoholic drinks (alcoholic beverages may be purchased separately at the bar).
The restaurant is just one block from the train station.
There is limited free parking on the streets; the Gateway Deck (7 Wall Street) in the Gateway Transit building across the tracks from the train station has parking for just $11/(4-5 hours).
The New Brunswick train station is a one hour ride on NJ transit from NYC Penn Station.
Capacity is limited and the registration deadline is April 25.
